With the oil and gas prices shattering new records, some boaters are opting to stay home this summer. This isn’t completely necessary, however, you just have to be smart. For example all major outboard oil companies such as Yamalube and Mercury have raised their prices. If you bought some prior to the price increase – or even if you’ve yet to purchase it – you can still have fun like you normally would.
Limit your trips in your boat. Go out on a day that you can enjoy with a large group of people, such as your family and/or your friends. If you spaced out your boating trips to two or three times a month instead of every weekend, you’re sure to save yourself some money and survive the dreaded gas and oil prices.
